User:Heyzeuss/Haitian Creole - English and WS:WWI[edit]

Hi, Wikisource is not the place for the creation or free-editing of works. Our tasks is to locate Public Domain work, and to reproduce it as it was originally published. If your work is to be as you have designated, then it probably belongs somewhere else. — billinghurst sDrewth 13:21, 10 May 2010 (UTC)

I'll remove the note encouraging free edits. Heyzeuss (talk) 13:32, 10 May 2010 (UTC)

A present for you[edit]

I downloaded the JP2 files, uploaded them back to the IA to rederive and got a DjVu after 24 hours of processing: File:An Exposition of the Old and New Testament - vol 3.djvu. Enjoy! Inductiveloadtalk/contribs 06:22, 29 October 2011 (UTC)

Matthew Henry's Commentary[edit]

Hi, the version we have already on here should not be overtaken by either the 1828 or the 1860 edition. We don't know what edition/version the CCEL one is. It is best to start a new MainPage and transclude to that. To this end I have undone your transclusion of the Preface and will create a new MainPage for the 1828 edition. We also definitely do not want to copy/paste from the CCEL version to the Pages namespace for the 1828 edition. Doing so doesn't prevent the need to proofread the text twice. Cheers, Beeswaxcandle (talk) 23:09, 4 November 2011 (UTC)

Sounds good. It looks to me like the CCEL version matches the 1928 version and not the 1960 version because of the bible verse reference format. That's why I later decided to upload the 1928 version, and use that. The CCEL website transliterates the Greek words into Roman script, so it is not a perfect match. I was able to obtain those missing djvu files by emailing Internet Archive and asking them to re-derive the files. Thanks for helping me clean up the index pages.

An Exposition of the Old and New Testament[edit]


Just looking over the scan; I noticed you marked blank pages as proofread. We mark pages without text appearing in the original publication "No text," the leftmost button. Also, we mark pages that need pictures,which have not been uploaded yet, as "problematic." If you have any other questions, let me know :) - Theornamentalist (talk) 17:34, 5 November 2011 (UTC)

Splitting up Matthew Henry[edit]

I'd like to suggest a couple of refinements, which will then make things easier. Instead of putting each Bible book as a third-level subpage under the Volumes, why not put them as subpages under the main-page? e.g. An Exposition of the Old and New Testament (1828)/Genesis The main reason for sub-paging under the Volumes is disambiguation. So, if there was a Chapter I in each volume then we would need to sub-page by volume. But, this work is a single flow and was only printed in several volumes for the sake of practicality. Then, I suggest that under each Bible book sub-page, we can then have a third-level sub-page for each Chapter of the book. e.g. An Exposition of the Old and New Testament (1828)/Genesis/Chapter 3. To make this work you will need to use labelled sections in the Page: namespace. Have a look at DMM where I'm doing this for the various articles. If you'd like to do it this way, I can help you get started. Beeswaxcandle (talk) 20:53, 16 June 2014 (UTC)

That took me some time to figure out because the books of the Bible are already second-level pages, and volumes are not in the hierarchy at all. In any event, I see what you mean. I was sort of planning to have this done sometime. I can start doing it piecemeal without having to go and move all of the pages. With more than one chapter completed in Genesis it is starting to look like the next logical step. I haven't really felt a need to create separate pages for each chapter, but I suppose I will after more of Genesis is completed. Heyzeuss (talk) 17:43, 3 February 2017 (UTC)

How do the proofread pages get added to the main text? I notice that previously proofread but not necessarily validated text is in the main Genesis page, but pages I have proofread myself are not.--PeterR2 (talk) 10:26, 21 January 2017 (UTC)

Automated import of openly licensed scholarly articles[edit]

Hello Heyzeuss,

We are putting together a proposal about the automated import of openly licensed scholarly articles, and since you are an active Wikisourceror, we'd appreciate yourcomments on the Scriptorium. For convenience, I'm copying our proposal here:

The idea of systematically importing openly licensed scholarly articles into Wikisource has popped up from time to time. For instance, it formed the core of WikiProject Academic Papers and is mentioned in the Wikisource vision. However, the Wikiproject relied on human power, never reached its full potential, and eventually became inactive. The vision has yet to materialise.
We plan to bridge the gap through automation. We are a subset of WikiProject Open Access (user:Daniel Mietchen, user:Maximilanklein, user:MattSenate), and we have funding from the Open Society Foundations via Wikimedia Deutschland to demo suitable workflows at Wikimania (see project page).
Specifically, we plan to import Open Access journal articles into Wikisource when they are cited on Wikipedia. The import would be performed by a group of bots intended to make reference handling more interoperable across Wikimedia sites. Their main tasks are:
  • (on Wikipedia) signalling which references are openly licensed, and link them to the full text on Wikisource, the media on Commons and the metadata on Wikidata;
  • (on Commons) importing images and other media associated with the source article;
  • (on Wikisource) importing the full text of the source article and embedding the media in there;
  • (on Wikidata) handling the metadata associated with the source article, and signalling that the full text is on Wikisource and the media on Commons.
These Open Access imports on Wikisource will be linked to and from other Wikimedia sister sites. Our first priority though will be linking from English Wikipedia, focusing on the most cited Open Access papers, and the top-100 medical articles.
In order to move forward with this, we need
  • General community approval
  • Community feedback on workflows and scrutiny on our test imports in specific.
  • Bot permission. For more technical information read our bot spec on Github.

An Exposition of the Old and New Testament (1828)[edit]

I have added a question to the previously empty Talk page Talk:An Exposition of the Old and New Testament (1828)--PeterR2 (talk) 13:02, 10 January 2017 (UTC)

Thank you for your comments on my page. My interest arose from dissatisfaction with the lack of proofreading in an app I was using which appeared to be sourced from CCEL. CCEL don't know where their text comes from, as it was imported from an outside source, but I have found some of the idiosyncratic phrases in snippet view Google Books (Fleming H Revell, Genesis; William Mackenzie, Titus). Unfortunately I don't have easy access to either without spending money on them, to find out whether the CCEL edition corresponds to any particular printed edition throughout the Bible. I am still brooding over the issue. I believe the original full Bible edition with contributions from other authors on the later New Testament books was in fact the 1721 folio [1]. John Bickerton Williams' life of Matthew Henry also mentions a quarto edition of 1811. I'm assuming this was the first edition to have been put into "proper" English without the abbreviated words (some very common in modern colloquial English) found in the 1721 folios. I've also seen mention of editions with the name of Burder in them. I haven't found a history of the "Exposition" through the centuries anywhere yet. --PeterR2 (talk) 10:13, 31 January 2017 (UTC)

The 1721 full Bible edition is certainly news. I may have to start overǃ Heyzeuss (talk) 11:12, 31 January 2017 (UTC)

Two questions: 1) Ought we to state somewhere that this is not the 1828 Towar and Hogan printing (see;view=1up;seq=11 ) but a reprint of it by Barrington & Haswell (1838??) ? 2) What do we do about the missing pages at the end of "Memoirs of the Life of Rev Matthew Henry"? Were they missing from the book at Princeton, or was this a scanning error? PeterR2 (talk) 10:15, 24 February 2017 (UTC)

You can add publication history to the author page. I don't know what happened to those memoir pages. I will have to look up they way that is handled elsewhere on Wikisource. For the time being you can add comments about the missing pages at the end of the preceding page. Heyzeuss (talk) 14:18, 26 February 2017 (UTC)

Validation Request for An Exposition of the Old and New Testament (1828)[edit]

I'm working on validating some of the earlier pages in Matthew Henry, Vol 1. Please would you be able to validate Page:An Exposition of the Old and New Testament (1828) vol 1.djvu/36 and Page:An Exposition of the Old and New Testament (1828) vol 1.djvu/37 . I have proofread both of these pages, and done a second check on them at a more recent date. --PeterR2 (talk) 08:47, 13 September 2017 (UTC)

Validated. Heyzeuss (talk) 11:05, 14 September 2017 (UTC) ː)

Thank you! PeterR2 (talk) 22:46, 14 September 2017 (UTC)
Please could you do Page:An Exposition of the Old and New Testament (1828) vol 1.djvu/59 too? PeterR2 (talk) 09:19, 15 September 2017 (UTC)
I have now validated all the pages available to me for validation apart from the four pages of family register. I have also done a second check ready for validation on pages 27, 49, and 51, which have URLs numbered 59 (mentioned in my previous comment above), 81, and 83. I would be most grateful if you could validate those three.PeterR2 (talk) 09:58, 22 November 2017 (UTC)
